Leave it to Rihanna to wear not one, not two, but three incredible looks at the 95th annual Academy Awards. And later, at an after-party, she debuted a fourth.
The singer was first caught on video walking into Los Angeles’s Dolby Theatre in a gray Eagles T-shirt, black Vans sneakers, an olive green bucket hat, a matching tote bag, and sunglasses.
Soon after, she stepped onto the red carpet, where she changed into an Alaïa ensemble composed of a dark brown leather bra and maxi skirt set layered over a matching sheer mesh turtleneck top. The showstopping skirt included thigh cutouts on the side and a dramatic train. She accessorized with Moussaieff High Jewellery and strappy heels custom-made for her by Gianvito Rossi.

The pop star wore her hair up in a spiky bun. As for her glam, she wore shimmering silver eye shadow, rosy blush, and a bright red lip.
Rihanna changed into another glamorous look to perform her song “Lift Me Up” from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The track, which is nominated for Best Original Song, earned the singer her first Oscar nomination. Other nominees include Lady Gaga’s “Hold My Hand” from Top Gun: Maverick, “This Is a Life” from Everything Everywhere All at Once, “Naatu Naatu” from RRR, and “Applause” from Tell It like a Woman.
For the performance, the singer looked incredible in a black bra embellished with a curtain of crystals and featuring sheer mesh straps. She paired it with matching black pants emblazoned with a golden floral design. She finished the look—custom-made for her by Maison Margiela by John Galliano—with black pumps, black leather opera gloves, layered diamond necklaces, a thick diamond bracelet worn over her gloves, and diamond drop earrings.
